Sculpture Loggerhead Sea Turtle
The loggerhead sea turtle is the second largest turtle on the planet.
They can grow up to 280cm and weigh more then 450kg.
They’re considered a vulnerable species by the international union for conservation of nature. Pollution in our oceans is currently the biggest threat to loggerhead turtles.
I have been lucky enough to have seen these amazing creatures many times. These experiences fueled my drive to create the “ocean drifter”. I wanted the sculpture to represent the real size of a large loggerhead turtle allowing people who have never seen one to appreciate these magnificent animals. I used recycled steel parts in the creation of this sculpture to help raise the issue of pollution in our oceans and the importance of recycling.
